Safety First: The Dangers of Chlorine Exposure
Chlorine has long been used to keep pools clean and safe for swimmers. However, prolonged exposure to chlorine can pose serious health risks. The strong smell of chlorine at a pool indicates that harmful chemicals are being released into the air. When chlorine reacts with organic matter like skin cells, oils, and urine, it forms chloramines—irritating compounds that can lead to respiratory issues and skin problems.
Children, the elderly, and individuals with preexisting health conditions are particularly susceptible to the negative effects of chlorine exposure. Removing a pool can eliminate the need for constant chlorine treatments, reducing the risk of exposure for you and your loved ones.
